are in the cnn "newsroom." thank you for joining us. news reported first here on cnn about syria. syria is agreeing to allow u.n. inspectors to the full site suspected of a chemical attack. many people that died were women and children. the syrian government continues to deny its forces used chemical weapons and yet another sign the u.s. is moving closer to involvement in syria, two key members of congressional foreign affairs committees from both sides of the aisle say they expect the united states to strike syria following the reports of chemical weapons attacks. the pentagon has already sent four warships with cruise missiles to the region. meanwhile, rush why's ministry of foreign affairs is warning against jumping to conclusions on chemical weapons before the u.n. investigation is complete. so let me bring in cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence in washington and cnn's frederi frederick pleitgen. when can we expect to see the inspectors at the suspected chemical attack site? >> reporter: the u.n. is saying they'll head to the site tomorrow. they didn't tell us what time tomo
. this is the u.s. government assessment of the syrian government's use of chemical weapons. specifically talking about august 21, 2013. this is a declassified, four-page report here. declassified. that is serving as proof that bashar al assad used chemical weapons on his own people. we heard from the top diplomat in this country, the secretary of state john kerry saying specifically, 1,429. that was the new number today. that's the number of people killed in that attack on august 21st of this year. hundreds of them children. reason enough, according to secretary kerry, for the united states to do something about it. >> the american people are tired of war. believe me, i am, too. but fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility. just longing for peace does not necessarily bring it about. and history would judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turned a blind eye to a dictator's wanton use of weapons of mass destruction against all warnings, against all common understanding of decency. these things, we do know. >> this is, of course, one of the huge new developments on syria today. keep i
decision, i will seek authorization for the use of force from the american peoples representatives in congress. for the last several days we've heard from members of congress who want their voices to be heard. i absolutely agree. >> and for the last several minutes we've been hearing more from members of congress, senators john mccain and lindsey graham, republicans released a joint statement saying while they do believe that syria's president bashar al-assad does need to be punished, they, quote, can not in good conscience support isolated military strikes in syria that are not part of an overall strategy that can change the momentum on the battlefield, achieve the president's stated goal of assad's removal from power, and bring an end to this conflict. democratic house member saying that it isn't enough to just have a vote, they need to have one now, he says. he's calling for the recess was just to wrap up until september 9th to be cut short, come back, vote now, he says. the president's plan to hit syria with military action clearly facing some real hurdles here in the united st

: anna, one of the most unusual aspects of the u.s. deciding to close so many embassies and consulates was that it came with a specific date attached, sunday. now that action is closely watched to see if there will be a terrorist reaction. >> out of an abundance of caution. >> first the warnings. now the waiting. u.s. embassies and consulates across the middle east, north africa and south asia are closed sunday in case terrorist threats turn into attacks. the move came after officials picked up incleasing chatter from al qaeda in yemen where multiple sources tell cnn an attack planned could be in its final stages. >> well, these numbers are so big that i can't go into them other than the fact that there definitely is planned a very enormous attack, a catastrophic type attack. that's probably the best way to describe it, and i can't really go any further than that. >> the threat is considered credible though ambiguous. it could target u.s. or western targets all across the region, though yemen is getting particular attention. with security around the u.s. embassy there even tighter than
with us. sunny, i want to start with you. how would this work? i think it's an important distinction it's not going to change the laws but perhaps how we handhandle the laws, is that right? >> i think some people are thinking this means the sentencing guidelines are no more. while perhaps that's where the government is going, the government would vu to go through congress. we know there's been such a log jam when congress is involved. what our attorney general is doing is he is telling the u.s. attorneys offices all across the country, all the federal prosecutors that rather when someone is arrested an indicting somebody they do not place on the indictment is the amount of drugs involved. the mandatory minimums don't get kicked in. it seems to be a rudimentary way of going around congress and legislation but it would be effective. he's the chief u.s. attorney and the chief prosecutor of the federal government and all u.s. attorneys offices will have to follow suit. >> he's kpapted to say we cannot prosecute or incarceraka incarcy of becoming a safer nation. how can he convince the publi
you? >> at there point, nothing surprises us. >> reporter: pressure is building to find way to oust a mayor who doesn't want to budge. he says he may have found way. laid out in his memo, the city's charter has a little used sex about firing city officers for unauthorized use of city money. cnn obtained the mayor's credit card statement showing charge ls at a san diego hotel, restaurants that are indeed, says the city attorney, personal expenses. >> somebody is so brazen and abusive and personal often, often that translates into the same type of conduct in financial affairs. >> the women who say he was sexually inappropriate or this investigation of his finances? >> reporter: they're equally important. they're equally damaging. here is the difference. the city attorney believes in as far as the expenditures, the credit card charges is in black and white. he feels he can move rapidly and quickly. this may be the ticket to get the mayor out quickly. remember there's this recall effort under way. >> thank you. we'll keep our eye on it. >>> turning 50 can be a big deal. michelle obama i
mean for you and the nation's capital? >> it means a great deal. it means so much because all of us who have lived through these 50 years remember what it was like then. remember what we've gone through over these so many years. we know, of course, what it's like right now. don, it's very, very fascinating that at a sensitive moment like this, when the president of the united states getting ready to deliver his important remarks commemorating the 50th anniversary of dr. martin luther king jr.'s "i have a dream" speech, he is right now also so preoccupied with the number one challenge facing any commander in chief. whether or not to go to war. in effect, the president has to decide very soon whether he is going to launch airstrikes, missile strikes, against targets in syria. i know he's been preoccupied with that huge decision he has to make. we're going to have full analysis of that coming up. certainly that decision, don, is hovering over the president right now. and if you think about dr. martin luther king, shortly after that speech 50 years ago, in the years that followed before his

lawrence joins us live at the pentagon with the latest on this. what can you tell us about this new threat? >> sources say this was more than the usual chatter. the threat is considered both credible and dangerous, enough so that they are closing at least 17 diplomatic posts around the middle east and that region. earlier this morning on cnn's new day, the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee went further. >> it's my understanding it is al qaeda linked, all right? the threat emanates in the middle east and central asia. >> we just learned that the state department has now released a travel alert for u.s. citizens who are traveling in the middle east and north africa. separately, a u.s. official tells us that they are monitoring a specific threat in yemen, the kcapital of yemen. remember, just this thursday, president obama met with yemen's president in the white house. counter-terrorism was one of the main topics they talked about. so far, the only al qaeda affiliate that has shown both the desire and ability to attack u.s. posts overseas is al qaeda in the arabian peninsula or
